FSSC 22000

A legislative requirement for the food industry in many countries.

FSSC 22000 is a legislative requirement for the food industry in many countries. FSSC 22000 became the sixth standard to join the stable of GFSI recognized schemes. This move helps drive cost efficiency and consistency in supply chains around the world when sourcing food and delivers greater confidence to the end-users of third-party certification whilst providing flexibility and choice. The result is an international, audit-able standard that specifies the requirements for food safety management systems by incorporating all the elements of Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). FSSC 22000 gives organizations a way to demonstrate, in an internationally understood format, that they have a comprehensive management system that meets the food safety requirements of both customers and regulatory agencies. The standard has been designed to cover all the processes along the food chain that deal directly or indirectly with the end product being consumed. It brings everybody along the food chain under a single food safety management umbrella, making it easier to train, implement and audit the management of food safety at every level of the food chain. TUV Austria is one of a few certification bodies accredited by ESYD to provide certification of FSSC 22000 and HACCP. TUV’s professional auditors work with clients to ensure the Hazards and Critical Control Points are efficiently identified, monitored, and continuously improved to meet the requirements of FSSC 22000 Compliance.
